3 Ways to Cope As a Single Christian

Being in a single status is also cool. Actually, it has many benefits; you have that freedom to do anything that you want without anyone to keep an eye over you (our parents is exceptional in here, of course), and you are not like a chicken tied in a tall post. Being single does not mean that you are all alone and no one loves you. Hey! You have your parents and circle of friends.

Many single Christians right now are being peer-pressured because they have no partners in life who can add some spice and make their lives colourful. Single Christians, should kiss that peer pressure goodbye. How? Well, let me share you some secrets in coping up for being a single Christian:

1. Get busy! Be a joyful single.

Enjoy life. You are free! Be involved in a ministry in your church or community. Matthew 6:33 says that we should seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (NIV Bible 2011). If you faithfully serve the Lord, many blessings will be poured out to you, which includes blessing in your love life of course. Sometimes it will come to you by surprise that the person which God plan for you to marry is one of your church mates or someone you meet in one of Christian gatherings you attended. Who knows? Only God knows.

2. Be Patient. Wait.

The bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:4 says that love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. The verse says it all. True love can wait. Do not rush. It is a step-by-step process. Each and every one of us has our own love story, written by a great author. We are commanded to trust on His great plan for our life without reservation, to abide and believe that there is one dear person who is destined to be your life partner. An individual like you who is also searching and asking God for the right person to come.

3. Ask, Seek, and Knock (Matt. 7:7-8).

Majority of Christians wants to have a life partner. In order to have that person in your hands, you should ask him/her from God. In Genesis 2:18, God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Take it from God. Even before in time of creation, he gave Eve to Adam. Some Christian singles become wary when they reached a marriageable age and there is still no wedding bells ringing, remember that God knows what you think and the desire of your heart even before it was conceived in your mind. If you put your trust in Him, nothing is impossible.

It is not a curse to be christian single. Use that freedom to touch lives and inspire others. There are many things that you can do for the Lord while waiting for that special someone.
